The tiles and pithos fragments in P-R 62-64 were photographed and sketched (see p.212).

The fifth cut into the plasterlayer in P-R 65-71 was continued in QP 66-67 and QP 69 (P only partially excavated).

In PQ  66-67 the burn layer at depth app 1.00m continued. Fragments of pithos still occured (incl. rims) (app, 1/2 cassatta was found).

Tile fragments were still rather abundant though usually small and definitely not part of a tilefall. 1 1/2 cassetta of tile and 1/2cassetta of plaster were found. A fairly large amount of mixed pottery and bone were also found. 2 boxes of pottery and 1 box of bone. No other fragments were found.

In QP 69 (especially P under the stump) a large concentration of pottery were found including several large fragments of pottery and several incised rim as well as lid fragments. Pithos fragments in this area also continued. 2 boxes of pottery and bone, some bronze, 1 1/2 cassetta of tile and 1/4 cassetta ofplaster were found.


P-R 62-64: The tiles, rocks and pithos fragments in the area were lifted. Apart from the acrpterion fragment in Q 63 and the two ridgepole fragments in R 63 and Q 63, two other ridgepole fragments were found in the tile/pithos concentration in P-R 64 and in Q 62. 2 /12 cassettes of tile, 1/4 cassette of plaster, 1 1/2 of pithos and 1 box of bone and pottery were lifted.

P-R 65-71: P 69 was finished. A few pithos fragments, a few tile fragmnets and 2/3 box of pottery were found. R 68 and part of Q 68 wee excavated to depth 1.00m. In R 68 large fragments of vitrified tiles and plaster occured. 1 cassette of plaster and 1/2 cassette of tile and 1 box or pottery + bone were found.
